Come party with your extraordinary fellow Singaporeans at the wildlife parks in celebration of Singapore’s 54th birthday this August. Jurong Bird Park, River Safari and Singapore Zoo will run themed activities around Singapore’s native species through August. What do the Asian small-clawed otter, crab-eating macaque and oriental pied hornbill have in common? They are part of Singapore’s native wildlife so you can consider them your fellow Singaporeans too. Learn more about them and other wild Singaporeans at the Love Your Neighbours activity booths and earn yourself a well-deserved exclusive animal pin when you complete the activities.
Singapore Zoo is not just home to the animals under its care, it serves as a rich habitat for local biodiversity as well. Sign up for a guided nature walk and take the opportunity to see Singapore Zoo before its opening hours. If luck is on your side, you may even spot native animals like the Sunda colugo, spotted wood owl or straw-headed bulbul. Catch the animals expressing their patriotism and love for this little island at the specially themed National Day animal presentations. Watch them reveal a special National Day message among their many talents during their respective showtimes.
What’s a party without food? In true Singaporean spirit, feast on local delights such as chicken rice and laksa in an All You Can Eat Buffet in Singapore Zoo’s Ah Meng Pavilion.
And for the month of August, local residents visiting Jurong Bird Park, River Safari or Singapore Zoo can get a second admission at 54 per cent of the original price with every paying adult. (Not valid 9 – 12 August 2019.)
